Red Storm defeats Ti
The Saranac Lake baseball team opened its season with a win, beating Ticonderoga 6-3 on the road Tuesday.
The Red Storm fell into an early 2-0 hole after one inning of play and then rallied with three runs in the top of the fourth to take the lead for good.
Saranac Lake tacked on two more runs in the fifth and another in the sixth while allowing the Sentinels just a single run after the hosts scored twice in their first at bat.
“What really impressed me is that we didn’t panic when we got down early,” said Eric Bennett, who picked up his first victory as a varsity baseball coach. “Our kids played well.”
Carter Sturgeon worked five and two-thirds innings and earned the pitching win for Saranac Lake. He was relieved by Brady Roberts, who turned in a strong effort to nail down the save.
David Warner smacked a triple in the victory and Will Woodruff came through for the winners with a pair of singles.
“We got great pitching from Carter, Brady Roberts came in and was lights out, and we got the bats going,” Bennett said. “Great way to start off the season.”
Owen Stonisch paced the Sentinels at the plate with a three-for-three performance.
Saranac Lake will be back in action today in its first home game, hosting Northern Adirondack starting at 5:15 p.m.
